Thanks to all the supporters of Sarah's Rural Library Fund, the new books from the 2017 Christmas campaign have arrived. The books from the series Leo y Escribo (I read and write), include the anti-war poem Masa, by Peru’s famous poet, Cesar Vallejo - When war kills people indiscriminately, will anyone remain on earth to say 'Stop killing!'?
And Los ojos de Gabi (Through the eyes of Gabi) by Alfredo Mires Ortiz, which breaks down barriers to disability by telling the true story of Gabi, a little girl with cerebral palsy who has a unique way of communicating through her smile. All of the drawings originate from Andean rock carvings, rock paintings, and ceramics, and all are from Cajamarca.
The books include additional pages for the readers of the Rural Libraries to write their own words inspired by the different themes. They hope to be able to publish more in this series of creative journals. Go to the Donate page if you would like to help fund this.
